Summer is for fun in our family. We take extra long weekends, spend it at the beach, at the farm and visiting relatives near and far and having a good time with each other. This relaxed enjoyment roles right into my quilting!
This summer I decided to just goof around with my quilting, not try and make a quilt for competition, but to just have fun, not worrying about 'finishing a quilt' but making samples and playing.
Where did that bring me? Well, with nothing in mind, I simply started making hexies. Probably because I can take them wherever I am with the kids. Plus I use my one minute hexie making tutorial you can find here on youtube. I use a simple circle and fold and tack as I go to create my fast hexies.
I started playing with different sized circles which made different sized hexies.
I absolutely love hanging my quilt projects on my grandparents barns. They are old and grey and so full of memories that my heart bursts being able to put my work on them.
I have also been playing with creating fun sayings that help motivate me.
What are you working on this summer?
